St. Paul, MN- Rep. Brian Daniels (R-Faribault) issued the following statement after the release of the Legislative Auditor’s evaluation report on MNSure. The report, made public on Tuesday, February 17th, concluded that “MNSure’s failures outweighed its achievements.” The report also stated that MNSure did not adequately test its website before launching and did not disclose the extent of problems that were present. Additionally, the audit found that MNSure commercial enrollments missed projections by 88% (49,000 actual enrollments vs. 413,000 promised in a 2013 fiscal note).

“Today’s report confirms that MNSure has woefully and inadequately underperformed in the duties that it was tasked to do,” said Daniels. “Minnesotans were promised lower costs and a site that would be easy to navigate. Instead, MNSure has caused headaches and higher costs for families.”
Daniels added, “I am looking forward to working with my colleagues to address these problems and to ensure fair access and affordability in health care for all Minnesotans and increased accountability for MNSure.”
